If you really want to know ... just ask ... I will be happy to tell you all of the great things about this bass... after 30+ years there is a reason I chose this bass
This is my third 5string... my second active 5
I play thru a GK 700RBII into a Carvin 18 and a Carvin 410
the Peavey looks incredible!!! and sounds even better !
I normally play and love my Steinburger 4 string.
I was worried that this bass would not have the Steinburger bite ...

I was wrong...

It has all the punch, all the tone, and more importantly all the BITE!!!

The three band EQ is nice, Easy to custom shape Your sound.

If you have any questions ... unlike most posts ... ask me ... I will give you my own and possibly brutal answers

I have been playing bass since 1977 ... and pls remember ... the only stupid question ... is the one you never asked

Main complaint is the low B string really doesn't sound as good when compared to a more expensive 5 string bass. Also, the three tone eq's aren't that great either. Having said the bad things first, you also have to keep in mind this is quite inexpensive for a decent 5 string bass, and like most Peavey equipment I've owned in the past, they last forever and are very dependable. After the warranty is over, I will probably change out the tone pots and put a better pot than what they have. I do like the pick-ups and it does play very smooth and easy one the fingers. The bottom line is: you can't expect an expensive sound from a bass at this price, so again for the money it's hard to beat.

I Like It!

By BluesBass-e8bT7

from Missoula, MT

Comments about Peavey Millennium 5 AC BXP 5-String Bass Quilt Top:

I have owned and played this bass nearly every day for about three years. I love the close string spacing. I have small hands and it helps. The tone is great and everyone comments on how good the Tigers Eye finish looks. The only negative point would be the tuners. I have had to replace three of the tuners so far. For just a couple of bucks more they could have used a better quality tuner.

Comments about Peavey Millennium 5 AC BXP 5-String Bass Quilt Top:

Sounds absolutely amazing, mine however did come with a bad B string. That's only a 10$ fix though so it was no hassle, but nevertheless it's a great bass for the price. I highly recommend this bass to anyone who is already playing a 5 string or looking to upgrade to a 5 string.

Awesome Bass!

By Kanchana Srinivasaraghavan

from W. Lafayette, IN

Comments about Peavey Millennium 5 AC BXP 5-String Bass Quilt Top:

Has great control. The fact that it actually has a 3 band equalizer helps to really find the sound you want. Plus the pickups are great. You can also string this bass two different ways.

The bass is pretty solid with good build quality. I've only had a problem with the part that holds the string near the bridge coming lose. So if you do any adjusting in this area be sure you're careful.

The bass is a bit pricey, but I think it is well worth the cost. It has the features and quality to back it up.

Overall, this is an excellent bass and definitely recommend getting one. I have had this bass for about 3.5 years. I have made many recordings with this bass. The pickups make this bass sound crystal clear when I record using Ableton. I play a variety of music ranging from metal to bluegrass, to folk. The fact that I have active pickups on the bass allow me to change the tone to suit any of these genres. I would definitely buy this bass again.

One note: I bought the Black Violet color. The bass is not actually as dark purple as the color suggests. It still is purple but just a bit lighter.

Comments about Peavey Millennium 5 AC BXP 5-String Bass Quilt Top:

I am very pleased with this bass. Right out of the box, it was set-up very nicely. I have been unable to find anything that needs to be adjusted. The neck is right, the action is good, the intonation is good. The finish seems to be flawless. It stays in tune. I got the Black Violet finish, which is more red than I was thinking it would be, but I still like it. The color is the same all around the instrument, very handsome. Of course the headstock is black, and it has a nice satin finish maple neck. Very adjustable preamp, the treble control is very hissy when turned full up, but I don't play the styles that warrant a bright sound, so it doesn't bother me a bit.I ordered the Musicians Gear black molded economy case, and it fits perfectly in that case. I'm very happy with this purchase, and with Peavey for such a great bass at a reasonable price.

    Comments about Peavey Millennium 5 AC BXP 5-String Bass Quilt Top:

    This is definitely a great bass, but not just for the price; not only because it's a cheaper five string, but it matches higher end five strings. The action on it is absolutely wonderful, and this makes it easy to play. The strings give off really good tone whether playing electrically or unplugged. Overall, it is just a really great bass and anyone would enjoy playing it.

    Cirrus Punch without a Cirrus Pricetag

    Comments about Peavey Millennium 5 AC BXP 5-String Bass Quilt Top:

    If you are liking the sound of the Peavey Cirrus basses and don't have the money to spend on those, this is a great option. Sure, it's not the super exotic wood of a cirrus, but it has what counts: The Cirrus Electronics. It's a blue-collar bass construction that lasts. I've been gigging with mine for a while and the only problem I've had is it's suffering from a dirty blend pot, which can cut out the sound completely (Which I'll take blame for, it had some neglect over it's use). I'm looking for eventually stepping into a Cirrus once I get a little more cash, but for now the Milleniums are a great workhorse even for an experienced Bassist.

    Comments about Peavey Millennium 5 AC BXP 5-String Bass Quilt Top:

    A decent bass. Solid for a Peavey. The only complaints I have is the flap of the low B string due to the 34 inch scale length and that when I drop my action real low I get a lot of string buzz. Overall this is a solid bass for an aspiring artist.
